3

Smallish tern with rapid wing beats, brief look at spur on face. Not in dark plumage however underwing and belly grayer than other terns. I might have seen one of these on previous day and let it go as sterna.

6
Sterna sp.

Continue to see non tropical terns. My guess would be COTE. Too large for BLTE

Closest I have seen to adult plumage.
